What is your perfered method of payment? I like getting checks, but they take way to long.And they expire fast. I don't know, is paypal faster? I don't know how to use it.

In the beginning I thought that checks would be better than paypal, because I didn't know paypal and I didn't know if it was safe to use it. In the beginning I only signed up for sites that paid via checks, but then I discovered how expensive it was to cash an international check in my country, and I decided to use paypal instead. I created a paypal account last year, and definately don't regret that decision, because I think that paypal is faster and easier to use than checks, and now I prefer to receive my payments that way.

I don't know, I guess it's less to worry about with paypal. But with a check you know its there.

Hello babytaffster. I've been a member of tons of sites for over 2 years now. Some pay from, checks, paypal, giftcards, to products. Any kind of payment is alright with me, lol. If I had to make a choice though it would have to be paypal. Paypal usually takes about 2-3 days to receieve payment to your bank account but that is better than having to wait a week or more for a check.

I prefer paypal because all my payments can build up so I can see my earnings for everything and it's convenient.

I prefer paypal over checks. You can overdraft checks if you aren't careful, but with paypal I never seem to have that problem. I also find it more convenient while paying online.

PayPal is so fast and so easy I don't know why you would want to use a check it takes far too much effort. You should just go to paypal and sign up it is not hard to do and you will get your money way faster.

Obviously PAYPAL is better than check. By using PayPal we can send the amount directly to our account very easily & it will take 3-7 days max also with a little fee.PayPal can be used very easily. Just create a free account in it & add ur bank details to ur Paypal account & tranfer funds to ur account.

I prefer Pay pal and think it is the best. It just gets deposited in your pay pal account and then you transfer it direct into your bank account you set up with pay pal. It takes about 2-3 days to get money transferred into your bank, but you don't have the worry of a check getting lost in the mail or by you. No trip to the bank. Pay pal does charge a fee which is the cost for convenience but it is very small. To use pay pal you just set up an account and link it to your bank account. It can be used for many things besides mylot. You can also use it if you sell stuff on ebay or have an online store or if you want to buy things on line you can use your pay pal account to pay for it as long as you have money in it.
